News & Notes
In an effort to collect perception data, we are asking families to complete our annual Clover Ridge Survey. There are questions related to environment, academic and social experiences, administration, and communication. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey as we reflect on the year.  Thanks in advance for your participation. Your feedback is anonymous and will be used for organizational growth and development.

Choir Concert Rescheduled:

Due to a scheduling conflict, the Clover Ridge choir concert that was scheduled for tonight will be moved to Thursday, May 3, 2018.
Clover Ridge will be hosting a different district event this evening  that may cause some congestion in the parking lot and building, which prompted the change. 
We apologize for any conflict this notice may have caused you.  We want to be respectful of your time, schedules and commitments and thank you for understanding the need for the rescheduled date and we hope to see you at the performance one week from Thursday!
